"and at times rivaled Garcia's"

Sorry, I agree with Dennis. As good of a rhythm player Bob was, to my 65 yo ears, he absolutely does not have the lead guitar gene. He's good at interesting little 3 or 4 note combos and that's about it - he couldn't string together a good melody to save his life. And he was standing next to one of the great melodists of the 20th century.

PS - the interesting little riff that he plays in China Cat? Garcia.
